      Impossible. This looks like a direct flak hit, not autocannon shell damage.

      Aerosol fuel ignition in a depleted wing tank from a canon shell, maybe? The elevators are all shot to bupkiss too. Something sure blew the wing off. Hope the crew managed to jump.

      Got the photo from the USAF web site.

      Good grab. No small wonder they are called the greatest generation.
